Have heard the k10s?

Nope, there are no demos here in mainland China.

i actually wish i had ordered the k10's man, 

how much of a diff could there be even if the roxannes are better, 

 

honestly am still excited for roxannes as they are my first ciem ever , but its just not fair to treat customers who are paying fu*ing 1850$ for CIEMS , where as my mom would be like don't pay more than $100 for ear phones, 
 

i saved up, borrowed a couple hundred as well, and this is how JH audio is behaving !

 



Some people here who got both Roxannes and K10 preferred the K10.
post #4115 of 8302

IIRC, 2 users here (Tupac and VZero?) that have both the Roxanne and K10 prefer the K10.

post #4116 of 8302

I don't think Tupac owns the K10 (not yet at least) - his opinion was off a demo unit he heard prior to getting his Roxanne.

 

- VZero prefers the K10

- lewisbot prefers the Roxanne

 

Anyone else?  

 

The K10 sounds like a killer unit, and probably at this point if I had $$ in hand and wanted to put it somewhere I'd pick that as the safe bet.  That said, JH Audio is not terribly well loved at this time, and well... the Wizard has a Val Kolton-esque presence on head-fi.

^ I stand corrected then.
post #4118 of 8302

Let me put it this way... if I could go back in time, I would have chosen the K10 simply because Noble Audio is a much better company to deal with.

Actually the more i think about that bass pot, the more i find it a bad idea.
Sure, its fun to play with the different levels now. But as the novelty wears off, most users are going to settle with one setting eventually.
That's when lugging that piece of plastic on the cable will quickly start to become a hassle.

Anyone have any thoughts?

To those who have gotten their Roxanne, have you tried using it while on the move?

Does the bass pot cause the cable to swing when you hold your dap while walking?

I read on a 3rd-party cable maker website that they will offer Roxanne cable with fix bass output, pre-determined by the client.
Can't remember the brand

I settle on 2 settings, 9 o'clock and 1 o'clock. One for reduced bass and the other if I need a bass boost. You'll never know when you will need to change the bass level. It's always convenient having that option to change the bass. The cable is thick enough for that piece of plastic not to botter me. It is actually useful when you put your DAP in a bag, that plastic serves as an anchor/stopper when the cable gets caught on something, preventing the cable from ripping off of the headphone out of your DAP.

Interesting, but I'm guessing there will still be some sort of widget on the cable?

That bag must have a rather short strap? smily_headphones1.gif
Even then, you are wearing customs, its going to be much more secure than universals in the event of an accident.

How about walking with just the dap on hand?
I'm pretty sure the inertia from the swinging will tug the cable enough to eventually cause a failure?
It was one thing i couldn't test while auditioning the demo.

That makes for an interesting DIY project. Cable-rolling which actually have noticeable changes.
Perhaps you can mesaure the resistance for each bass level setting you prefer and then make a cable with a fix resistor to the bass line to get the same effect.
